Total Solar Eclipse 2017 Guide and Map (Farmer's Almanac)

WHERE, WHEN, AND HOW TO WATCH THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017

by Bob Berman

Prepare for the total solar eclipse of 2017—the first to appear over the mainland United States in nearly 40 years—with our viewing guide and eclipse path that shows the path of totality across the country.

WHAT IS A SOLAR ECLIPSE?

To the naked eye, the sky is an inverted bowl hosting thousands of glowing points and two disks. The points—stars and planets—exhibit no size because of their immense distance from Earth. The two disks are the Sun and Moon. By amazing coincidence, these disks appear exactly the same size. Why?

The Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon but also 400 times farther from Earth than the Moon. These facts allow the Moon to fit perfectly over the Sun's face to create a total eclipse. Yet, it's not so big that it blocks out the Sun's dramatic hot-pink corona or atmosphere and not so small that it leaves the Sun's blinding gas surface (photosphere) uncovered. This bizarre alignment does not hold for any other planet and will not last forever: The Moon is spiraling away from Earth like a skyrocket and gradually increasing its separation.

The perfect lineup of these two disks (Sun and Moon) to form a total solar eclipse does not happen often—just once every 360 years, on average, for any one point on Earth. (This is one reason why relatively few people have ever seen one.) The U.S.mainland is currently experiencing its longest totality drought in history. The last total solar eclipse occurred on February 26, 1979, over northwestern states and south central Canada.

This cycle of paucity finally ends with this year's total solar eclipse, taking place on August 21, 2017.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE?

For sheer visceral impact, a total solar eclipse is not even remotely comparable to a lunar eclipse, a partial solar eclipse, or even major auroral displays. A solar totality stands alone. If you are in the right place, it creates darkness in daytime along a 140-mile-wide ribbon of Earth. The brightest stars come out in midday but not as you might presume: During totality, they appear in seasonal reverse. In summer, the winter constellations emerge; during a winter solar totality, summer's stars appear.

And that's not all.

An uncommon mind-set takes over people when the Sun, Moon, and your spot on Earth form a perfectly straight line in space. Many observers shout and babble. Some weep. Afterward, everyone proclaims it to be the greatest spectacle they have ever beheld. Beyond that, many are speechless. (Animals also exhibit odd behavior, such as falling strangely silent.)

The experience surpasses all expectations and imaginings:

  • The eye sees the transition of the Moon over the Sun differently from photographs; because of under- or overexposure, a camera lens can not capture the same range of brightness as human vision.
  • The delicate tendrils of the Sun's corona splay into the surrounding sky in a manner wholly different from the way they appear in photos.
  • During the 10 minutes before and after totality, when the Sun is more than 80 percent eclipsed and its light arrives only from its edge, or limb, earthly colors turn richer and more saturated, while shadows become stark and oddly crisp—as if a different type of star is illuminating Earth.
  • As the Moon slides over the Sun, not only is light blocked in the ribbon of space, but solar heat is, too. The steady drop in temperature usually results in a haunting eclipse wind.
  • At 1 minute before and after totality, all white and light-color ground surfaces underfoot (sidewalks, sand, the like) suddenly exhibit shimmering shadow bands everywhere. (Think of black lines on the bottom of a swimming pool that appear to wiggle.) This eerie phenomenon can make your hair stand on end, yet it can not be captured on film. (Try it!) Recent research suggests that shadow bands are the edges of atmospheric temperature cells (air pockets) made visible by the remaining tiny point of Sun. Their motion catches the eye despite their extremely low contrast.

To witness these extraordinary phenomena, you need to be in totality's path (see map, below). This year, you can drive into it and watch from a roadside! Totality lasts longest—over 2 minutes—within the centerline of the ribbon. A partial eclipse will be visible outside of that ribbon, but the phenomena described above will not occur there.

Healthy. Cures. "The Reality of Plant Based Nutrition"

Healthy.  Cures. 

"The Reality of Plant Based Nutrition"



Published on Jul 9, 2017

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure. Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases. Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive, but so straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously? Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Dr. Campbell, a nutritional scientist at Cornell University, was concerned in the late 1960’s with producing “high quality” animal protein to bring to the poor and malnourished areas of the third world. While in the Philippines, he made a life-changing discovery: the country’s wealthier children, who were consuming relatively high amounts of animal-based foods, were much more likely to get liver cancer. Dr. Esselstyn, a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, found that many of the diseases he routinely treated were virtually unknown in parts of the world where animal-based foods were rarely consumed. These discoveries inspired Campbell and Esselstyn, who didn’t know each other yet, to conduct several groundbreaking studies. One of them took place in China and is still among the most comprehensive health-related investigations ever undertaken. Their research led them to a startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet. Despite the profound implications of their findings, their work has remained relatively unknown to the public. The filmmakers travel with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn on their separate but similar paths, from their childhood farms where they both produced “nature’s perfect food”; to China and Cleveland, where they explored ideas that challenged the established thinking and shook their own core beliefs. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed. Forks Over Knives utilizes state of the art 3-D graphics and rare archival footage. The film features leading experts on health, examines the question “why we don’t know,” and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years." https://www.forksoverknives.com/synop...

Empathy: Key to Effective Action

Shared from: CharlesEisenstein.net

by Charles Eisenstein (February 2017)

When we hear calls for empathy in politics, sometimes we think that this comes at the expense of effective action, or that it means letting racism, oppression, etc. slide. In this video Charles explains how it is actually quite the opposite -- how conditioned responses of fighting lock us into futile replays of the same old program. And, how empathy allows us to act from what is real, rather than from our projections about what the "other" us, opening a new domain of creative and effective response.

Ten Basic Forms of Fake News Used by Major Media

Ten basic forms of fake news used by major media « Jon Rappoport's Blog
Ten basic forms of fake news used by major media
by Jon Rappoport  shared from  NoMoreFakeNews.com
June 28, 2017

The basic purpose of these ten forms: the presentation of a false picture of reality.
You could find more forms, or divide these ten into sub-categories.
The ten basic forms are:
* Direct lying about matters of fact. (This sometimes includes doubling down on lies already told, or telling a bigger lie after the first one.)
* Leaving out vital information.
* Limited hangout. (This is an admission of a crime or a mistake, which only partially reveals the whole truth. The idea is that by admitting a fraction of what really happened and burying the biggest revelations, people will be satisfied and go away, and the story will never be covered again.)
* Shutting down the truth after publishing it—includes failing to follow up and investigate a story more deeply.
* Not connecting dots between important pieces of data.
* Censoring the truth, wherever it is found (or calling it "fake news").
* Using biased "experts" to present slanted or false "facts."
* Repeating a false story many times—this includes the echo-chamber effect, in which a number of outlets "bounce" the false story among themselves.
* Claiming a reasonable and true consensus exists, when it doesn't, when there are many important dissenters, who are shut out from offering their analysis.
* Employing a panoply of effects (reputation of the media outlet, voice quality of the anchor, acting skills, dry mechanical language, studio lighting, overlay of electronic transmissions, etc.) to create an impression of elevated authority which is beyond challenge.
These are all traditional forms and methods.
Here's an example of a big story that deployed all ten forms of fake news: the Swine Flu pandemic of 2009.
In the spring of 2009, the World Health Organization (elevated authority whose pronouncements are beyond challenge) announced that Swine Flu was a level-6 pandemic—its highest category of "danger." In fact, there were only 20 confirmed cases at the time (direct lying about "danger"). And W.H.O. quietly changed the definition of "level-6" so widespread death and damage were no longer required (another aspect of direct lying).
The story was, of course, picked up by major media outlets all over the world (echo chamber effect, fake consensus, never connected dots re W.H.O. lies), and quite soon, Swine Flu case numbers rose into the thousands (direct lying, as we'll soon see).
Medical experts were brought in to bolster the claims of danger (biased experts; important dissenters never given space to comment).
In the early fall of 2009, Sharyl Attkisson, then a star investigative reporter for CBS News, published a story on the CBS News website. She indicated that the CDC had secretly stopped counting the number of Swine Flu cases in America. No other major news outlet reported this fact (omitting vital information).
Attkisson discovered the reason the CDC had stopped counting: the overwhelming number of blood samples taken from the most likely Swine Flu patients were coming back from labs with: no trace of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu. Therefore, a gigantic hoax was revealed. The pandemic was a dud, a fake.
Despite Attkisson's efforts, CBS never followed up on her story (shutting down the truth after exposing it). Never probed the lying by the CDC (failure to connect dots). In a sense, CBS turned Attkisson's story into a limited hangout—a further investigation would have uncovered acres of criminal behavior by both the CDC and the World Health Organization, to say nothing of the governments and media outlets that supported these lying agencies. The mainstream press essentially censored Attkisson's revelations.
Then, about three weeks after CBS published Attkisson's story, WebMD published a piece in which the CDC claimed that its own (lying) estimate of 10,000 or so cases of Swine Flu in the US was a gross understatement. Truly, there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US (doubling-down on lying).
And that was that.
And these mainstream sources are currently shouting and bloviating about independent media spreading fake news. I guess you could call that number 11: accusing their opponents of committing the crimes they are, in fact, committing.

Which completely screwed up healthcare bill do you want?

Which completely screwed up healthcare bill do you want?

by Jon Rappoport  shared from: www.NoMoreFakeNews.Com
July 4, 2017

You can have Obamacare. Or you can take the current Republican re-do. Have you read it? Do you know exactly what's in it? Of course not.
I can tell you this. Every possible healthcare bill has the same flaw. It's called death. I'll explain in a moment.
But first I want to mention that, for the past decade, as a working reporter, I've taken many actions to put a piece of medical information in front of mainstream news media, and they won't bite. No matter what. I've published the information, backed it up seven ways from Sunday, and it doesn't matter. No dice.
Here it is. Again. Every year, like clockwork, the US medical system kills 225,000 people. That's a mainstream conclusion. A conservative conclusion. By extrapolation, that means the US medical system kills 2.25 MILLION people per decade.
Therefore, any new law that places more Americans inside the medical system through insurance plans will increase those death numbers. The death numbers will rise to new heights.
Where does the 225,000 death figure come from? A review in the July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, titled: "Is US Health really the Best in the World?" The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
When I interviewed her in 2009, not long before her death, I asked whether the federal government was doing anything to comprehensively fix the medical horror show, and whether any official from the government had approached her to consult on that fix. To both questions, she emphatically answered: "NO."
In her Journal review, Starfield broke down the ongoing medical tragedy this way: annually, 106,000 Americans die from the effects of correctly prescribed, FDA approved, medicines. 119,000 Americans die as a result of mistreatment and errors in hospitals.
Again, it doesn't matter what kind of national health insurance plan you prefer. As long as it puts more Americans under the umbrella of the medical system, the death figures will rise.
Starfield was not the only person to blow the whistle. I'll give you two more examples.
Consider this article, "The Epidemic of Sickness and Death from Prescription Drugs." The author is Donald Light, who teaches at Rowan University, and is the 2013 recipient of ASA's [American Sociological Association's] Distinguished Career Award for the Practice of Sociology. Light is a founding fellow of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, he was a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. He is a Lokey Visiting Professor at Stanford University.
Donald Light: "Epidemiologically, appropriately prescribed, prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, tied with stroke at about 2,460 deaths each week in the United States. About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the United States and Europe. They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more hospitalizations [than the deaths: 6.6 million hospitalizations annually], as well as falls, road accidents, and [annually] about 80 million medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others. Deaths and adverse effects from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures." (ASA publication, "Footnotes," November 2014)
One more. The journal citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989), "Anticoagulants cause the most serious adverse events, finds US analysis." Author, Jeanne Lenzer.
Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: "It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing 'serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.'"
The report called this "one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity."
And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA's own database of "serious adverse [medical-drug] events."
Therefore, to say the FDA isn't aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn't saying anything about it, because THE FDA CERTIFIES, AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, ALL THE DRUGS THAT ARE ROUTINELY MAIMING AND KILLING AMERICANS.
What I'm pointing out in this article is an ongoing devastation that sits at the bottom of any conventional health plan.
All discussions about which national insurance scheme is right for you ignores that devastation.

KID KNIEVEL !

Ok... so, I was CRAZY into Evel Knievel! that nutty mofo was MY BIGGEST IDOL. So one year for Christmas, I got the Evel Knievel jumpsuit with stars n' stripes in a "v" shape on the front and back, cool white cape, fake helmet and mask! Hell yes! A MASK of Evel's face! It was essentially a Halloween costume for Christmas and I was over the frickin' moon excited about it. 

I tried it on and I didn't take it off all day! There's a photo somewhere of myself, ROCKING my Evel jumpsuit and mask! 
And I was not fucking around! I was dead serious! No laughing was allowed.I was nine years old and I was THE MAN (back when imagination was a necessity).

So, before New Year's Day even came around I was on the back street jumping ramps on my FLY second hand dirt/trail bicycle - and faster than you could say "shattered clavicle" I had toy Tonka truck busses lined up and was clearing them easy! 


High arcing jumps with a dope front wheel twist at the apex.. mask and ALL! I was soaring and neighborhood kids were gathering.

I was the hero of the neighborhood and my new found micro fame was getting to my head a little. But, all was well, I had it everything under control.

Being a true stickler for authenticity, on day two of "Evel Comes to Eastview Street", I insisted on adding a landing ramp, which was a piece of plywood propped up on a cinder block. But it made the jump look exactly like the ones I saw on TV. I recruited more toy busses from kids in the neighborhood and day two took off with a soaring success! 

A skinny nine-year old masked kid with a fresh ass white cape whippin' in the 7mph breeze created by piston-like peddling... lift off! Flight! Smooth landing! HOORAY! 50,000 kids cheered as I nailed the 5 toy bus jump (actually, it was 5 kids and one was a toddler who gave zero fucks and kept screwing around with my busses). The kids lined up 6 busses as I circled around far down the street to start my dramatic approach. WHOOSH! Cape whipping! And BOOYAH! Easily cleared the 6 toy bus jump! Next up, SEVEN BUSSES! 

I circled back down to my starting point. I peered crookedly through the eye holes of the plastic Evel mask, my breath making that wet swishing sound at the mask's mouth slit! Pumping the pedals like a mad man I built up speed on the breath-taking quarter mile approach to the take-off ramp. Seven busses! I was focused like never before and I was going faster than ever before as I approached the ramp! So fast, in fact, that the wind blew the mask over my eyes... I saw nothing but the mouth slit! Topping out about 7.5 mph I still hit my mark and soared from the take-off ramp, but couldn't see anything except a tiny spit soaked slit. I couldn't line up my landing and my front tire hit the cinder block holding the landing ramp and the bike stopped instantly... but I kept flying! Crooked Evel Knievel mask, cape still whipping, my fame came to a scabbed up ending with a mouthful of dirt and both arms broken just above the wrist!

The seventh bus... was one bus too far. 
And in keeping with my respect for authenticity, just like my idol, I had broken bones, a destroyed bike, ripped and torn star-spangled jump suit and the hardest lesson my ego had to learn; until girls came along, of course. 

That's my big bike wreck story.

How Strawman came to be…

(Ordering instructions below)

The following is excerpted from my blog (realitybloger.wordpress.com) and contains instructions on how to receive a printed book. Further updates to this website to follow. Please leave all comments in the "COMMENTS AND REVIEWS" page above.

My readers should know that this is Volume I of a two or three Volume set, and that this first Volume when printed into book format will be around 1140 pages, with future volumes equally large.

For those that might use this page number count as an excuse not to read this work, consider that just one of my multitude of sources for this work, "A Treatise On The Law Of Agency" (1905) weighs in at 1146 pages alone. It was not but a few generations ago that the measure of a man was his ability to rhetorically speak of religion, law, and politics due to his collection of such various tomes, while the supposed men of today whine when a YouTube video is more than 10 minutes as they watch like children on a Saturday morning cartoon binge. To these so-called men I say, either grow up or do as thou wilt, as your adversary wishes.

I made a promise and vow that all of my work will forever remain free to all who seek it. And so I ask that you not only freely acquire this work for yourself here by downloading it without qualification, but also to freely share it with whomever you see fit. I ask nor expect nothing in return or consideration for this gift.

However, for those who may comprehend the truly fragile nature of digital things in an ever-increasingly censored digital realm not at all our own, I have endeavored to print this work out so that the current and future book-burners will have something to do. Alone I have no capacity to cause this work to be continued to be printed and freely spread. I need you to recommend and pass it to everyone you can, if indeed this is your disposition. I would not task anyone with such a request without first giving one the chance to read it for oneself. So enjoy and take to heart what is written in the Truth and intent it is written.

As I will never sell this work in any legally licensed or public capacity, keeping it at all times a private gift, I can only ask for donated gifts to be put forward by those interested in acquiring such a paper-bound, printed copy of this book. The first section of my work explains why I have chosen this particular path, and why I refuse to publish (make public) my private work under any fictional, legal state names or titles, why I refuse to register this work as the creation of any legal "person," why I refuse to assign any ISBN or other mark or bar-code of the legal government upon it, and why, because of these choices this work in its printed form is only available though a direct contact with me. I will not sell this work for any price. I can only give it away freely and do the same as a printed work, unconditionally, to those who are willing to donate unconditionally a gift so that it may be printed and reprinted, and so that I might find food on my table. 

And so herein is laid out the only way anyone can receive a free copy of this soon-to-be-printed work. The free copy in pdf will always remain for free to acquire to all, with no questions or strings attached, and with no consideration ever expected in return. For those that wish to donate to my efforts and future Volumes without receiving an actual soft-bound printed copy in the future, being content and happy with merely the digital pdf, I would be grateful for any unconditional gifts to help me continue with Volumes 2 and 3, as well as a future book on the history of the CAFR scam. But this gift is not at all necessary or expected in any way. Again, please share this work freely and without exception, without consideration of charge or profit and without any false sense of guilt.

I have fielded several estimates and have finally found a local book-printer (not a publisher) that has what appears to be the most reasonable prices. We have entered into an agreement and will have final printings in early June. In the interest of total transparency, my cost to print this work is around $7.50 each to print, and I will be paying shipping and handling. Foreign shipping is certainly more expensive, and you may donate a bit more to cover this cost if you choose. The remaining donation amount will be used for reprinting Volume 1 and hopefully for the first printing of Volume 2 some time next year, with a bit left over that I might keep the lights on and eat.

As I stand today, I am a bit short on donations, and will need to borrow what remainder is needed. If you would like to help now and also receive a copy hot off the presses in June, please consider donating to the cause! (See instructions below)

My lifestyle choices do not allow me to spend anything but on the bare essentials of existence with few exceptions. As I know many out there are as disenfranchised from this totally corrupt system as Iam, some by choice and others by happenstance, I will always give my work away for free to all who seek it. But I personally made this choice a decade ago, giving up my lucrative career only to hold a now worthless diploma and resume', and a blackball from my so-called professional industry (Hollywood). I chose to become a full-time activist and researcher, and have participated in over 2,000 hours of radio as either a guest or a host without ever receiving a dime. I've honestly never had anything to sell. Amazingly, I get more criticism for this fact than praise, as it seems that we have been so thoroughly brainwashed as a cult-ure that when anything is offered for free there somehow must be something wrong with it or its author/creator. It seems that if I sold this work for ten cents I'd get more downloads than if I give it away freely in such Pure Love and Charity. This is just one aspect of the ultimate moral degradation of our collective being.

And so I have only this choice available to me if I am to stick to my guns in honor of what I have written and seek to teach and spread, which is to offer a free copy of this work in its printed, softcover book form in exchange for a suggested gift. As I am no salesman, I have no idea what to suggest, nor do I have any inkling as to what is "fair," as if anything in this iniquitous money system could be labeled as such.

And so I offer two avenues. I will suggest that for a $40 gift I will send you a future free gift of a printed paperback book when it is soon printed. In this way I may raise enough to keep printing new batches, pay for shipping and handling (packaging), and dare I say to keep feeding myself in the process. Also, this may allow me to send some free copies to media and radio hosts, or anyone else in need without the perceived illegitimacy of a mere pdf copy, as ridiculous as that publicly induced perception is.

If you find this to be agreeable after examining this free pdf and finding value in my research and work, then please send an email with a subject line that states "TO BE DELIVERED" to me at (clint@strawmanstory.info) with your mailing address, and stating your desire to receive the gift of a free printed book in the mail. Please indicate where and by what method your unconditional gift was sent, and how many copies you are seeking. But bear in mind that this in no way is a "sale" or "purchase," is not a taxable transaction, and no receipt will be offered. I will send out the books when they are printed and obviously not before. In other words, your gift is in support of me and my future efforts and livelihood, not the payment of any price or charge for this absolutely and always free work. If you feel the need for legal contracts in legal persona to have any trust in men, and thus in myself, especially after reading my work, then I do not hold much hope that you may ever come out of her. Please utilize the free download, and may you come find the right-hand path.

If you would like multiple copies, I will still recommend the above method and gift for each. However, if you wish to contact me and speak directly to acquire multiple copies, we may come to a mutual understanding. For while I would love the pdf to be passed out, I would be extremely pleased to see the printed book be passed out freely (charitably) as well. As there is and never will be a set price or any price whatsoever on this work in whatever form, I reserve the right to deal only with cool people. Lol. That's the beauty of remaining in privacy. If you don't like that, go back to your safe space.

Finally, if you are a bookstore and seek to acquire multiple copies for your store, you must know that I only accept gifts. I will not participate in any form of commerce, but will be happy to deal only with a man, not a person, employee, or owner of any corporation. How you handle that is up to you, but keep your legalities and fictional entities clear from me. Let's talk. But be clear that this is not a "non-profit" work. It is not taxable nor is it tax-deductible. It holds no such rights or privileges from government. I will not play any of those reindeer games, and I will sign no contracts. This book is simply not approved by church and state!

Finally, let me say a big thank you to all who have selflessly supported me throughout this long journey. If I could explain how I feel right now, it is that I imagine that this is how it feels to let your child go free into this corrupted world after nourishing and nurturing him or her for so many years. Nothing is more frightening than to put the word "finished" on any work, especially one like this. I ask those who do read this free pdf to please let me know if you find any mistakes, either in spelling or in grammar, or for that matter in structure and interpretation. But please do not lose the forest for the trees, the whole for its parts. If you have questions on any point, please feel free to respectfully email me and place the word "question" in the title. But what I ask most of all is that if you have a critiquing comment on this work to please keep it to yourself until you have finished the whole. For this is a maxim of law and scriptural Truth, that one cannot judge the parts without experiencing and understanding the whole. Remember as well, that this is only Volume I, and that Volume II will continue where this one leaves off, providing ever more in depth evidence of what may be presently unclear. These Volumes are not separate works, but one whole work. The reader can only help the author and others with clear and concise questions, answers, and information regarding whatever is not comprehendible or missing. 

This work is, as are each of the various systems of man's law, very much like a jigsaw puzzle. Most find a large chunk of the puzzle and focus their whole lives upon that singular misleading piece or chunk of pieces, and so stop searching for or even regarding the whole. They become guru's of their own puzzle piece, a part that ultimately means nothing without all the other pieces that make up the whole. In this work, I am attempting to connect all of these infinite pieces into a clear view of all the parts. This cannot be done in soundbites or in a short essay, but only in a voluminous work such as this. But please know that it is not that I have or claim to have all these pieces, for no one man does. The real goal lies in finding and securing the border of the puzzle, the foundation, so that all other pieces may fit inside of it and securely remain there.

The legal law is its own circular trap, its own puzzle, speaking itself into a false existencewithin its own proclaimed border of jurisdiction. Everything outside of that fictional realm is Reality, and is bound only by the Laws of Nature. And so we must learn to recognize all things by which puzzle, which design they fit into, and to keep those borders air tight, learning never to mix what is Real with what is fiction. For at some point, simply knowing what is fiction and what is not is enough to deny its power and to keep that big legal lie at bay within its own borders.

It is not ignorance of law that can be excused, only ignorance of fact. And the fact is that all of man's legal law is artificial. Interestingly, law is not ever considered as fact. If you know this fact in your mind, body, heart, and soul and make no excuses for ignoring this fact, then you will never need or pretend any excuse or license for your own actions. You will never need any of man's laws as your excuse for not having an excuse. You will never seek the judgment of man's courts, never falling prey to their agents and magistrates (gods), the creators of their own puzzle (property). For they, in their false personas and legally flattering titles, exist only in their own legal world (jurisdiction) as creators and administrators of that big lie, behind the border (bar) of their own puzzling legal prison for the mind.

All comments are welcomed on this post and at the other website (preferred), but pointless and insulting rhetoric and fallacious attacks will be removed promptly. Constructive criticism is always welcome, if presented with a pure and loving intent to help others and improve upon my own knowledge. We all must begin choosing our words very carefully, speaking only towards the benefit of all others, and never to harm. This is the highest Law of Love and Charity.

If any of this is unclear, It is spelled out in the first 35 pages of this work. If you are wondering why I choose such unorthodox methods, it will become evermore clear with each turn of the digital page. I can say or do no more at this point.

Again, I thank all of you for your loving support and patience, allowing me to make so many mistakes and to then overcome them with your own words of wisdom. For the first time, I actually feel like I have accomplished what before seemed impossible – a work that may withstand the test of time and of history. I have sought after and found self-evident Truth; that which Arthur Schopenhauer stated and which I now can confirm, that, "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

I hope that my work brings the same enlightenment that it caused for myself to enjoy, as I learned and keep on learning. And now, without rest, I will continue with Volume II, a seamlessly connecting future part of this whole work.

If anyone may help in getting the word out about this work, be it via advertising, creating and posting a free banner of the above picture linked to the downloadable book on your own or on another website, posting that link in comments sections of other websites, arranging interviews or speaking engagements, etc., I would be most appreciative. I am website-illiterate in this regard, so any help and effort to spread the word about this free work is much appreciated. I would also love to travel and give talks on this information and actually have Real contact with people.

A (computer-generated) audio reading of this work will be posted soon as well.

With True Love and Devotion, and under my first and only private name…
